Uganda Cranes preparations for the TotalEnergies Africa Cup of Nations Qualifiers have intensified.

The Cranes will face Algeria away on 4th June 2022 at Oran Stadium and four days later will host Niger at St. Mary’s Stadium,Kitende.

Cranes coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic summoned a 35 man preliminary squad, from which he will select the final squad for the double header.

England based striker Tyrhrs Lukonyomoi trained with the team on Wednesday morning.

Two more players are expected to join the camp on Wednesday.

While speaking to the press Micho revealed that the final squad slots are not guaranteed for any player.

“If someone comes from England and is better than locally based players, of course they succeed to be in the travelling squad that will travel to Algeria and playing against Niger.

“However in the same moment I need to say that we are happy that they are having desire to play for Uganda. However this is not enough they need to come and prove their qualities in comparison with the rest of the players we shall see who is best of the best.”Micho said
